On the top of the card we can see the LSI controller covered by a passive heatsink. On the right we also found the DDR II 800 MHz memory.

The two SFF-8088 miniSAS ports are located on the back and allow the cable to plug into the card. Each port carries 4 lanes and together allows for up to 240 SAS or SATA HDDs.

The back of the card is fairly uneventful.

LSI includes a quick start guide, a low profile bracket and instructions for changing the brackets. Also included is a pair of software disks that have the drivers, software and detailed manuals.
